1964 Masters Tournament Golf Series Badge Arnold Palmer
Very nice 1964 Masters Tournament series badge. Augusta National first introduced plastic badges in 1961 making pre 1970 badges very hard to find. Arnold Palmer dominated this tournament in his era and then came Jack. Now Tiger is looking at doing the same, but will he ever match Jack Nicklaus’ six victories at this tournament, only time will tell.
The 1964 Masters Tournament was the 28th Masters Tournament, held April 9–12 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. A field of 96 players entered the tournament and 48 made the 36-hole cut at 148 (+4).
Arnold Palmer, age 34, won by scoring three rounds in the 60s and a final round of 70 to win by six strokes. With this win, he became the first four-time winner of the Masters. This was his seventh and final major victory.
This was the last Masters tournament that Craig Wood entered. He never finished his 1st round though and he withdrew. Wood was runner-up in the first two Masters tournaments in 1934 and 1935 and he won the 1941 tournament.
